A Message from Joanne

I will preface my very first blog post by stating that as someone who has an undying, lifelong loyalty to Penn State, I do not need any reason to hit the “dislike” button when it comes to University of Michigan. Putting all of that aside, I am angry.

Okay University of Michigan Football … I will commend you for the corrective actions that you plan to take immediately, that will ensure a “bird’s eye view” of the on field action, as well as a process to improve communication on the sidelines. And I am happy to see that Shane Morris will be resting instead of playing against Rutgers on Saturday. But, viewers all over the country (over 100,000 in the stadium alone) watched Saturday’s game and it seems as though the only ones who did not notice what was happening to Shane Morris were the Michigan coaches and medical personnel. After he got hit, he tried to walk off the field and looks like he is about to go down when offensive tackle Ben Braden assists him. So he is helped off the field, his ankle is assessed and he is cleared to go back for one more play. In the meantime, the neurologist – who saw Shane stumble – determined that he needed to head down the sideline to evaluate Shane. But there was a “lack of communication” and Shane returned for one more play …

Let’s make it our business to support coaches and trainers when they make the decision to remove someone from play and to support players who feel they should be removed from play – from the professional teams on down to the weekend recreation youth sports leagues.

Thanks for listening … Joanne Finegan
